Camille is a professional dressmaker turned sewing instructor with a wealth of sewing experience that she’s just waiting to teach you
This beginner's sewing class will get you acquainted with how a sewing machine works and feel confident to take on projects in just one afternoon! Just see what our previous students have to say about the class.
At the end of the day, you will bring home a drawstring bag from this class - perfect for storing your sewing tools.
This class is suitable for complete beginner sewists, however, if you're not sure if this is the right sewing class for you please get in touch.
This is a sewing class for complete beginners, with little to no knowledge of how to use a sewing machine. Students are encouraged to bring their own sewing machines, if possible. A perfect course to follow on from this one would also be our Beginners Dressmaking Weekend where you can sew your first garment.
What You'll Learn in the Beginners Sewing Class
How to thread a sewing machine
How to adjust tension, stitch length and width
How to use a basic pattern and cut fabric
How to hem, topstitch and do a basic finish
A dressmakers recommended sewing tools for beginners
In the morning you will learn how to use the sewing machine. We will take a thorough walk-through the threading process, discover how tension works, as well as troubleshooting broken needles and wonky bobbins.
In the afternoon, you will tackle your first sewing project; a drawstring bag. The drawstring bag allows us cover some very versatile skills, including fabric cutting and pattern handling.
Spaces are limited to 6 participants per class to provide the ultimate learning experience
What previous students have to say...
"Having started as a complete beginner, Camille opened up a whole new dimension of creativity and fun. She brings such joy to her teaching and shares in your delight as your progress on your sewing journey."
"Camille is my favourite kind of teacher - funny, kind and relaxed, knowledgeable and experienced but unassuming! It feels good at the end of class to have changed into 'someone who can now sew'!"
